Hi Keri, 
Here is another thread from a while back about this topic.

As far as colones go, it might be best to wait until you arrive and exchange dollars into colones. You can change money at any bank in Costa Rica as long as you bring your passport. Banks have the best exchange rate as far as we know. 
Hope this helps.
